VESTAL, N.Y.—In his final collegiate season, senior wrestler Nate Schiedel is making noise up a weight class.
The three-time NCAA qualifier bumped up from 184 to 197 pounds this season and has opened the season with a 12-0 record. Schiedel is currently ranked No. 6 in the nation (Intermat), joining classmate Donnie Vinson (3rd at 149) to give the Bearcats a pair of top-10 individuals.
Schiedel, 103-28 in his career (56-10 in duals), captured a title at the Binghamton Open and has compiled a team-high three technical falls already this season.
The Bearcats return to the mats on Decembe4r 29-30 at the prestigious Midlands Championship, hosted by Northwestern.
